We’re back again with a new data demo to teach you some fundamental skills you can utilize on your journey as a data scientist (or data engineer).

Maybe you’ve heard the term Web APIs in your research, but for those just starting out, Web APIs are a way of communicating and obtaining data from web-based services. In data science, it’s common for Web APIs to interface with these applications when building data-based applications – it’s a crucial skill to have as a data scientist.

In this on-demand learning demo, Don Fox will show you the basics and you’ll learn:

• What Web APIs are
• How to communicate with Web APIs in Python
• Use GitHub’s REST API to determine common licenses used for Python based projects
